Grilled Lamb Chops

Summer is just about here and that means I want quick dinners that I can get on the table in minutes. I don’t want to spend hours slaving in the kitchen when I could be outside soaking up the sun with my family but I also don’t want to cut corners by serving up a ton of processed convenience foods.

This recipe for Grilled Balsamic Lamb Chops with Herb Goat Cheese Sauce is one of my favorites because it’s made from clean ingredients and the prep work takes about 5 minutes total.

I love feeding my family grilled Lamb Loin Chops. The flavor is rich but delicate with a slight sweetness that is only found in lamb products. They cook quickly so they’re perfect for dinner on the fly.

How to Grill Lamb Chops

Lamb Chops soak up marinades and rub flavors so well. I used a Balsamic Vinaigrette and marinated them for a few hours. This gave the meat time to absorb all the sweet tangy flavor found in the dressing. I LOVE an all natural bottled Balsamic Dressing for convenience or you can make your own at home.

Start by marinading your lamb chops in the dressing for an hour or up to overnight.

Grill the lamb chops for about 10 minutes (5 minutes per side) over high heat.

Rest the lamb chops for 5-10 minutes to give the juices time to redistribute so your chops are not dried out.

While the grilled lamb chops rest, you can make the sauce Plain Greek Yogurt, Garlic and Herb Goat Cheese, honey, and a splash of apple cider vinegar.

Blend everything together in a blender or food processor until smooth. This leaves you with a creamy, tangy, slightly sweet Herb Goat Cheese Sauce that you’ll want to put on everything.
